Title: Contrast‑induced acute kidney injury in COVID-19 patients
Author: M. Gucun, M. E. Isik

Abstract: METHODS: Forty-two COVID-19 patients who underwent emergency PCI due to the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome were included in the study. Mean age was 63±14.76 and males accounted for 81 % (34/42). Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) was defined as absolute increase in serum creatinine level by 0.3 mg/dL above baseline within 48 hours of contrast exposure. Patients were divided into two groups according to CI-AKI development following coronary angiography.
RESULTS: CI-AKI developed in 33.3 % (14/42) of the patients. Pre-procedure e-GFR (p=0.028), serum albumin levels (p=0.021), and ejection fraction (p=0.039) were lower in the CI-AKI group. Whereas the platelet/lymphocyte ratio was significantly lower in the non-CI-AKI group (p=0.010).
CONCLUSIONS: Our study results demonstrated that patients suffering from COVID-19 had a high risk of
CI-AKI development following coronary angiography (Tab. 1, Ref. 36).
